In a rapidly changing NHS, this course gives the context for understanding healthcare business and finance. This is key to recognising how finances and financial pressures can affect patients. The NHS must do things differently – this means working increasingly closely with social care, finding new ways of delivering care and, in England, the urgent implementation of the NHS Long Term Plan. This course will help you to understand who does what and why in the NHS and how the money flows from HM Treasury to NHS organisations. It will also provide insight into what needs to change and the barriers to making that happen.
